We had a new tent for short breaks, this was at Hay-on-Wye in July 2005


As bought

This was an ex-Electricity Board Land Rover, I bought it from a man in Blackpool. He had a diesel 88" and a BMW car which he wanted to use instead!!
This picture was taken at Tatton Park not long after I acquired it.
Isle of Mann beach.
The Landy was purchased in September 1988 with a clapped out engine. I rebuilt a second hand 2.25 petrol engine and fitted that before our holiday to the Isle of Mann in the summer of 1989.

All dolled up

At a nephew's wedding, the bride and groom had a Rolls Royce, but the Landy looked better!


Leather seats

These seats came from a Jaguar XJ6 and transformed the comfort level for long journeys.
They make it a joy to drive on a daily basis too.

Golden Gate

Don't be fooled: I've been there but the Landy hasn't

Stable platform!

The front of the roof slopes at just the right angle for the ladder to be straight. A truly versatile vehicle.
